Day 133: Ugly Lamps Part 3

You gotta save the best for last aand these are certainly the ugliest.
I wish I knew how the artist made the head of this person. Is it covered foam or paper mache or something else entirely?
Bottom line, it is a bleeding and dead head with a knife sticking out the top.
This would work quite well along side the electric chair lamp in you’d haunted mansion.

Again, we have a lamp was just ugly and made me uncomfortable to look at. It was a taxidermied squirrel eating a nut with the lamp shaft coming from its back. The lamp had been covered with sticks (and hot glue) while the base had wood shaving that you would find on every forest floor.

There were other lamps that were very ugly and although I never pick the winners I think these were the most memorable of the bunch

Day 132: Ugly Lamps Part Two

This lamp was just plum impressive. It is an electric chair and the lights blinked as if it was electrocuting someone.
Awfully morbid and very spooky. I think this would be an awesome prop in a haunted house or for a Halloween party.

My husband tells me that this weird oil lamp style was actually really popular for some time. I believe the painted bits and googly eyes attached to the statue were the made parts. It was pretty hideous to look at and the googly eyes were disturbing.

Two more awesome pictures of lamps coming up.
